Take a look at this http://groups.google.com/group/macromedia.dreamweaver/browse_thread/thread/b35c438cf323caa4

However, if you want you can size everything to 100 % .

In Dreamweaver, do you create a Table or DIV?
When you create either, you can give it a size like 300 px or 900 px.
You can also give it a size like 100% (change the px to %).
So, if you have a Table sized at 700 px wide and change it to 90% wide, it will take up 90% of whatever screen it is on.

You are correct about divs.  Tables are old. Still widely used, however.
Same approach, you can create a wrapper div (one that goes around all the others) and size that by % of screen size.  If you have smaller ones too, however, they should also be resized by %.

yes, but the gif would fill up 100% of the page.

You may want a background div 100% then another div for the gif itself set for 100
